    Default Web server mail send

    I have a few servers that need to send via the Zimbra server, however I don't know the range of the IPs that are used.
    I don't know the /x either
    I've already tried x.x.x.0/0 to no avail.
    Does anyone have any advice on this matter?
    Release 8.0.7.GA.6021.UBUNTU12.64 UBUNTU12_64 FOSS edition.

    Do not add their IPs to the MyNetworks setting, get the other servers to authenticate against the ZCS server and use port 587 as the (correct) submission port.

    The servers themselves aren't sending, they make smtp connections to the mail server (Zimbra) in order to send.
    The Zimbra server needs to allow relay from that network, or their specific IPs.
    Sorry, I'm not feeling well so I might not make sense immediately.

    I understand what you're trying to do but the mail servers that are relaying through your ZCS server need to use the correct Submission Port (which is 587 not port 25) and authenticate to send email - using anything else is a security risk.

    We have begun the migration to ZCS.
    The servers create an smtp connection to the mail server to send from the website they host.
    This now has to be done using Zimbra which is on a different IP range.
    If I understand you correctly, we cannot simply allow Zimbra to relay our own network in this manner?

    You can but it's a security risk, the easiest is to follow the instructions I gave you earlier.
